This is Dr. David

you need to consult with an eye doctor to assess your corneal erotion

you might need a pressure eye patch for a few days on your eyes to help with healing.

sodium chloride drops 2% or 5% several times during the day and sodium chloride ointment 5% at bedtime could help

there are other measures which could help you heal if these measures don't work

have you seen an eye doctor yet?

have you tried a pressure eye patch for 1-2 days to see if this helps?
